I have a '97 TJ. Looking for options on how to mount my Hi-Lift Jack to the front bumper. Rear is already too loaded.

Have a fantastic Topless Day!!!:iamhappy:

Mount it in the shed at home.
Those things are a hazard looking for a place to happen.

I agree with the above, however... If your mind is set on it. There's tons and tons of commercial brackets sold for that. Just need to spend some time looking at them and decide what would work...

You also neglected to mention what type of bumper you have. I've never seen one made for a front bumper, but there's plenty that come to mind that could be used with some drilling.

Looks like you may have a stinger or bull bar on the front of yours by that tiny profile avatar.. You could drill straight though that get some 7/16" bolts long enough to go through the bars and HiLift. Put the high lift on the bolts and secure it with nuts or wing nuts.

Kinda like this on my previous bumper

Yes HiLifts can be dangerous but, if used with some common sense in applications that they were designed for they can be a helpful tool.

Just a couple there are more if you do the research

A 48" HiLift will fit nicely behind the roll bar across the wheel wells in front of the tailgate. Keeps it out of the weather and off would be thieves radar.

There are mounts for that too
